Can we also discuss the DC animated movies in here? I think it's by far the best DC has come up with in terms of translating the comics to a TV Screen. If you haven't watched any of them then there's tons of fun waiting for you!

I personally recommend Batman: The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 & 2, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox and Justice League: War
Are those straight adaptations of actual comic stories?

Not sure if "straight" but all of them are adaptations or at least are based in a specific comic or story line.

OK.  Well, I figured that with Dark Knight Returns.

I haven't seen any of them. 

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Ah, we're a week behind, here in the UK. So I haven't seen the fallout yet. Episode ended with Barry finding himself at some point in the past (looks like pretty recent past).

That's where I am too, haven't caught this week's episode yet.

I did see last night's Arrow.  Good stuff.

Playing the same role he did in the 90's Flash show I hear.

I watched it when it originally aired.

I wouldn't recommend it.

Finally caught this week's Flash.  Weird how all the big stuff from last week got wiped out.  Oh well.

I liked that aspect of it. It will now be very tempting for Barry to go back in time when bad things happen, yet he knows things will change...and not necessarily for the better.

Caught up with Arrow last night.

I don't know...there are still a lot of compelling reasons to watch the show, but I'm bored with some of their themes. The whole 'secrets destroy trust' angle has been done to death, I think.

I was glad to see Ollie embrace the idea of another hero in town and extend an olive branch to Ray.

Oh, I agree, and I love the time travel element.

I just hope they don't wind up overusing it.  You know, the last element had all these big moments, but they all got wiped away, so they don't really count since they never happened, which means they have other chances to do them all again, which more time travel could wipe out, rinse, repeat, etc, ad nauseam, yada yada yada.

ditto

It's like they were trying to recreate the first Batman movie on TV, with bright neon colors contrasting with a gritty, crime-ridden city.  But it just didn't work.

Has anyone heard the rumors that Tom Welling may appear on The Flash as Superman?

Yea, that's a real potential. I hope it's used sparingly too.

Did you notice Green Arrow's new suit in the preview for the next Flash episode? I'm sure that wasn't an accident...

Yea, Flash was great and is definitely surpassing Arrow for my interest. Mark Hamill was terrific and somehow was able to give the Trickster his own voice...I was expecting a Joker clone (since he is the voice of the Joker).

he actually had the line, "I am your father"

Mrs. P yelled, "NOOOOOOoooooooooooooo"

The best part of reading this is that we both have brainwashed our significant others to love what we love.  My wife loves this show.  Our work is done. :lol

I know you're probably going to find this hard to believe, King, but Mrs. P turned me on to the Arrow and Flash. She's the one who brainwashed me.  :biggrin:

I guess I'm the only one who thought Hammill was awful in that role.  I thought he overacted in a way that would have done Nicolas Cage proud.  Easily the worst performance of the season, on any show that I've seen.

But otherwise, a crazy episode.

And how about Arrow last night?  That is getting crazy!

I'll stick with Arrow for a few more episodes but I don't think I'll last through the whole season. I find myself laughing out loud at the contrived conflicts and bad acting by the police Captain (and others). I think I'm ruining Mrs. P's enjoyment, although she would never say anything.

Anyway, Ra's al Ghul calling the cops on the Arrow?!  :lol :rollin  Ridiculous.

I think Flash is much more fun.

Loving Mark Hamill's appearance in this week's (UK, last week's US) Flash. He has his Joker voice on!

I thought this week's The Flash and Arrow were really good.

Cisco extorting a photo of him and Black Canary together cracked me up.  :lol

Arrow has taken a turn for the better IMO and should be really interesting going forward. When Malcolm told Oliver that Thea wouldn't come back from the Lazarus Pit the same, I had a bit of a Pet Sematary feeling about it...which kinda was confirmed when she flew out of the water and attacked Ollie. Damn near made me jump!  :)

Next weeks The Flash looks to be a real rip-roarer and maybe will reveal more about the whole time travel thing.

The thing I find with both Flash and Arrow is that the over-arching storyline for each is really well done and compelling, but the week-to-week stories are weak, poorly written, and filled with wtf moments, plot-holes, and inconsistencies.  It's maddening sometimes... to many "C'MON MAN!" moments.  Like this week with The Flash, how did the shapeshifter lose him just by walking around a corner?  And at the end, why bother even fighting him, just inject the guy.  I can overlook those moments, but there are a lot of them.

I thought Flash was a bit weak actually. How stupid could Barry and Caitlyn be? I think the writers could have come up with better scenario. Barry seriously believed Eddie was released right after he was talking about the meta human?
